Mariupol Underground

Occam’s razor in action

To my utter surprise, it turned out that the rumors about the dungeon (or rather most of them) has arisen not on an empty place. Although the information in them is often distorted beyond recognition – they’re based on real facts.

By a happy coincidence, we can even specify the exact date of the beginning of the study “underground” theme of Mariupol. It happened September 1, 1928, when the employee of Museum of local lore Peter Mitrofanovich of Pinevich were called to the corner of Karl Marx and a Small Garden. Working, cleared a ditch for a water pipe, found some mysterious underground passage. Inspecting and questioning the local old people the situation is not clarified. I note that Pinevich was not able to deal with this underground structure. Concluding his report he makes the assumption that the course could be dug by the Cossacks or the Turks .

Described by Pinevich the course really stands out among other well-known dungeons in the city. We will consider in the third part of this article.

Of particular surge of interest in Mariupol dungeons observed in recent years. Recent publications the most informative article should be called N. Skrypnyk “Catacombs near Mariupol. Do they exist?” The author has led quite a lot of evidence about the tunnels. Taken together, these facts convince us of the reality of the existence of such phenomenon. Continue reading

Megalithic temples

Megalithic temples

Among other merits before history, the Maltese archipelago is world famous for the fact that the most ancient man-made structures on Earth are located here. This is the megalithic temples .

The person who first confronted with such prehistoric monuments, raises a number of questions: what is the churches, how many are they, where are they located, what purpose was built? Let’s start with the basics, what is the megalith at all? In fact, it is every religious building of the huge raw or semi-processed stone blocks, which include dolmens (funerary box, covered with a massive flat slab), and menhirs (single standing stones) and cromlechs (circular fence) . Maltese megaliths are dolmens . The most famous stone circles on the planet are Stonehenge (England) and Carnac (France, not to be confused with Egyptian temple complex), but the construction of the ancient Maltese, in addition, they are distinguished “accuracy” – more than twenty temple complexes located on the territory, comparable to a small European city.

What they have in common? – the material, design features (e.g., login form), in many cases, and similar architectural form, resembling the petals of a flower. Some temples are rather primitive, probably not all the details have survived, and others have specific Continue reading

Famous unfinished buildings

Sometimes construction projects can be time-consuming to complete. Naturally, we are talking about a huge complex jobs that require a lot of skills invested assets. Run them sometimes delayed, just as the process of construction, which may take centuries. In this list is followed by ten world-famous structures, the construction of which was started a long time ago, but they still remain unfinished due to some reasons.

Atomic power plant marble hill

Most of the elements in this list, despite the fact that they are not completed, are still in use for different purposes. But some of them are nothing more than useless colossal failures. Marble hill falls into this latter category. This nuclear plant in Indiana was started in 1977, and for about 7 years had fully completed.

Then in 1984, after investing $2.5 billion it turned out that she only finished half. The company that started the project, realized that just can’t afford to continue to build on. They ended up being sold a piece of equipment to return a few million of lost expenditure. The plant is located in a semi-finished state since then, and the company, which owns Continue reading
